The notion of Asteroidal triples was introduced by Lekkerkerker and Boland [6]. D.G.Corneil and others [2], Ekkehard Kohler [3] further investigated asteroidal triples. Walter generalized the concept of asteroidal triples to asteroidal sets [8]. Further study was carried out by Haiko Muller [4]. In this paper we find asteroidal numbers for Direct product of cycles, Direct product of path and cycle, Strong product of paths and cycles and some more graphs.
